1. BeltLine Marketplace opens

🛍 The BeltLine Marketplace is now open on the Eastside and Westside Trails of the Atlanta BeltLine, offering  Black, LGBTQ+, and women-owned small businesses an extraordinary opportunity to promote their goods and services.

Organized by the city and The Village Market, the businesses are located in colorful shipping containers under the Freedom Pkwy. bridge on the Eastside and Allene Ave. on the Westside.

 “There’s no marketing strategy I could have paid for that would have been equivalent to what they are offering us,” said Terrence Albritton, co-owner of Grady Baby Company & Apparel, which was selected to be part of the venture.

Your dog's ears

🐕 Regularly inspecting your dog’s ears and performing routine care can help keep problems at bay. But, they are bound to appear once in a while. 

Here are some of the most common signs that an ear infection may be on the way:

🐩 Head shaking 
👂 Rubbing ears on the floor 
🐾 Scratching ears
🦮 Avoiding contact near the ears
🐾 A smelly discharge

Regular routine care & grooming visits to Scenthound can keep your pup’s ears in tiptop condition. We look for signs of infection and other issues to help you spot them early, helping your pup (and you) avoid the pain, discomfort, and cost of small issues becoming larger ones.

Our team is experienced in providing routine dog care for your pup’s skin, coat, ears, nails, and teeth, and we help pet parents keep their dogs clean and healthy.
